The Indian Point Safe Energy Coalition (IPSEC) is a coalition of environmental, health and public policy organizations, founded in 2001 to address the vulnerability of the nuclear reactors at Indian Point. Over 20 million people live within 50 miles of the plant. Our concerns include both existing radiation releases and potential additional releases from either human error, aging infrastructure or terrorism, and the flawed, unfixable evacuation plan. Our grassroots efforts have enlisted the support of hundreds of local, state and federal officials.
Nuclear power is neither clean nor green! Conservation and renewable energy sources hold the key to a sustainable future for the Hudson Valley Region.
We are now working on how best to decommission the three reactors at Indian Point and move to renewable energy for the Hudson River Valley and all of New York. This includes supporting a New York State Decommissioning Oversight Board, and a local Citizens Advisory Board. Fuel rods must be removed from the fuel pool and stored on site. We endorse Rolling Stewardship as explained by Gordon Edwards and Hardened On Site Storage as the best way to supervise highly radioactive material and keep it separated from people and the environment.
The Indian Point Convergence meets monthly, generally on the first Sunday of the month. Check the calendar for details. We now meet virtually on Zoom. Prior to the pandemic we met at Stony Point Conference Center, 17 Cricketown Road, Stony Point, New York. Our meetings start at 1:30 pm.(https://stonypointcenter.org). We hope to return there.
We welcome new members. Call or text us at: 914-954-6739.
